Kesri Nishaan Sahib At Sri Hazoor Sahib

Recommended Posts

Nilla (Blue) Nishaan sahib is ment to repersent Akal Purkh Ke Fauj where ever you see the Nilla Nishaan Sahib you can Guarantee there is a fauj there. The Kesri nishaan sahib is for the panth. What i was wondering as Sri Hazoor Sahib (Sach Kand Darbar) why is there a Kesri Nishan Sahib and not a nilla one ?

Doing some research i found it was Ranjit Singh who changed the Nishaan sahib to kesri ?

Why was this?

Was it Ranjit Singh?

Just question not judging

the blue ones are usually for the chhouni, and there is a chhouni near sachkhand which has a neela nishan sahib.

a chhouni is a army camp, also one thing i forgot to mention earlier was that Sachkhand is a Takht, so it wouldnt have a blue one anyway. all the takhts have kesri jhande.

I don't think it should be questioned, Maharaja Ranjit Singh may have not been perfect, however, I doubt the change wouldn't have gone unchecked if it were wrong. Akaali Phula Singh had punished Maharaja Ranjit Singh at least once for doing something against Sikh rehit, if he had made an error on this case he would have been confronted about it and would have addressed the issue.

As far as how it's true regarding whether or not Maharaja Ranjit Singh changed the color, I don't know.

Nishan Sahib was white up until Sri Guru Hargobind ji Maharaaj who changed it to Basanti!! Not kesri.

Im not sure how the blues came about...maybe 7th Patshah brought about the Blue which was then changed to Basanti by 10th Patshah.

I know during Maharaja Ranjit Singhs time, Nishan Sahibs were changed to kesri. But they were changed back to Basanti during his reign.

Sooo Nishaan Sahibs should as they were, BASANTI. Not bahman rangi kesar yh.

Not a learned person, just gonna repeat hearsay and experience. I always thought that there are 5 sikh colors: white, black, orange, blue, yellow. And heard that originally black was not a Sikh color, but was added during the british times, when Sikhs wore black dastaars to protest against the British. Then it became part of the panth. Now I hear that orange was not an original Sikh color, but added to our panth from brahminical influences. But i think orange should be considered a sikh color, just as black was, orange/kesri stands for the khalistan movement, bhai sukha jinda wore it on their saheedi day, babbar khalsa wore it, etc..

Yes they have it wrong. Kesri colour is brahmanical doings. Nothing to do with Sikhi. Should be Basanti Lehar. But its just a colour for the campaign...irrelevant really could've been pink lehar. The Nishaan Sahib on the other hand colour and all has significance. I dont know why its Basanti but thats how it was and should be.

Dr Sukhpreet Singh Udhoke talks about what colour the Nishan Sahib historically was and how over time it has changed.

In the time of the 3rd Guru, Guru Amar Das Ji, the Nishan Sahib was the colour white. This was to represent peace & purity (shantee).

Then in Guru Hargobind Ji's time the Nishan Sahib was changed to a shade of yellow called Basanti.

In Guru Gobind Singh Ji's time the NIshan Sahib was of the colour navy blue.

At the time of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur and Khalsa Raj the Nishan Sahib placed in Delhi was blue.

However, the Dogray asked Maharaja Ranjit Singh to add the photo of their mata to the Nishan Sahib and change the colour to orange. He changed the colour, however, he did not add the picture of their mata.

But Akali Phoola Singh said he would keep the blue Nishan Sahib. Therfore, the Nihang Singh's have kept a navy blue Nishan Sahib as it was the colour instilled by Guru Gobind Singh.

The orange (kesri) is not our colour. In the REHAT MARYADA there are 2 acceptable colours of blue and yellow (basanti)

In the image linked above Sant Giani Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale have tied a Kesri dastaar. Is it possible that they would've tied a dastar of a colour that's not in accordance to Sikhi bana?

thats interesting........I wonder what others have to say here.
